Olympic gold medalist Nathan Chen will drop the ceremonial puck before Friday evening’s Anaheim Ducks-Los Angeles Kings game at Honda Center.

Four fellow Olympic skaters who also train at Great Park Ice in Irvine will also participate in the ceremony — Brandon Frazier, Alexa Knierim, Mariah Bell and Michal Brezina.

Chen, Frazier and Knierim were members of the U.S. team that won the silver medal in the team event.

Frazier and Knierim were sixth in the pairs competition, the best U.S. finish at an Olympic Winter Games in 20 years.

Bell was 10th in women’s singles.

Brezina, who competed for the Czech Republic, was 25th in the men’s short program, failing to advance to the free program.

Great Park Ice is owned by Henry and Susan Samueli, who also own the Ducks, who use it as their practice facility.
